A white, bright, confident smile can make you look and feel your best. White teeth are seen as more attractive, and patient’s with whiter teeth smile more often.
Tooth discoloration is a normal process most commonly caused by years of built up stains, and the slow erosion of the tooth’s enamel, leaving the inner yellow colored dentin exposed. Discolored or yellow teeth may be keeping you from sharing your bright, beautiful smile.
Whitening your teeth is just a short dentist visit away. With professional teeth whitening treatments, Dr. Hassan and our Centreville, VA dental care team can help you get your teeth up to 8 shades whiter in just one hour. But you may be wondering- How do I keep my teeth whiter on a daily basis? And what is the best way to extend my professional teeth whitening results?
How To Keep Your Teeth Whiter
Here are some How To’s on keeping your pearly whites, whiter- for longer.
- Eat Your Fruits & Veggies: A healthy, well balanced diet may benefit more than just your waist your line. Eating certain foods may actually help whiten your teeth, and at the very least, help to support strong, healthy teeth. Broccoli’s high iron content protects your enamel from accruing stains while the malic acid in strawberries is thought to help create a whiter, brighter smile.
- Be Consistent With Oral Hygiene: Always brush and floss your teeth at least two times daily. Brushing and flossing not only keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy, it can also prevent stains from forming on your teeth. And of course, visit Manassas Smiles at least once every six months for your hygiene appointment. Professional dental cleanings reach hard to clean spots and can help maintain your pearly whites , especially after a teeth whitening treatment. Healthy teeth, are beautiful teeth, routine dental care is essential for a wonderfully white smile.
- Prevent Stains Before They Happen: Beverages high in acidity and dark in color are prime culprits for staining tooth enamel. That is right, coffee and red wine are some of the worst drinks for maintaining a beautiful white smile. That does not mean you can not enjoy a coffee or glass now and then, just try not to sip on them all day, and limit yourself to one a day. Lifestyle habits like smoking can also create dingy, yellow looking teeth.
